A look by Rika Van Heerde
On February 16, graduating seniors in the University of Minnesota's apparel design program showcased their best work in a fashion show. Here are GIFs of four designers' work, with descriptions from the show program.
Mai Yang: "Her collection consists of classic silhouettes and tailoring techniques paired with beautiful fabrics, such as gold brocades and Chantilly lace in order to embody luxury."
Lucie Jane Mulligan: "For this evening collection, Lucie Jane drew inspiration from the Irish coastline, with its hard structured cliffs and smooth flowing waves."
Rika Van Heerde: "This collection was inspired by images that present themselves at first as romantic, feminine and poetic. However, with a lingering look, the haunting details of the images reveal a darker side to the viewer, these images are simultaneously strikingly beautiful and deeply disquieting."
Khampasith Davison: "Khampasith's senior line focuses on a bridal party inspired by organic forms and their lavishness of artwork, architecture, and interior decorations of the Baroque period."
